AluLine provides the complete package for non-ferrous machining

Team Cutting Tools from CERATIZIT has completely re-vamped its range of high-performance solid carbide milling cutters for machining aluminium and other non-ferrous materials. The new AluLine series is a complete package of cutters that extends to over 2500 types covering rough and finish machining, with users having multiple choices of corner preparation with sharp, chamfered, radiused or ball nose styles all available off-the shelf. AluLine is available in diameters ranging from 2mm through to 25 mm with a variety of flute and length configurations, all available as standard products with the Team Cutting Tools guarantee of next morning delivery for any cutter ordered prior to 6:30 pm the previous day.

AluLine performance is enhanced through use of CERATIZIT’s extremely wear resistant DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) which provides up to 80 percent of the hardness of natural diamond to protect from damage caused by built-up edges or abrasive alloy accretions in order to deliver extended tool life and elevated cutting data. Where the application demands it, uncoated cutters also available across much of the range as standard. Further enhancing customer choice is the wide variety of flute geometries with variable depth flutes, polished flutes and, various flute lengths available.

“The completely new range of AluLine solid carbide cutters now provides the widest choice for machining aluminium and non-ferrous materials thanks to the combination of substrate, geometry and DLC coating along with the ex-stock availability of such a diverse range of cutter styles. The addition of even more choice when it comes to corner radii, ranging from 0.3 mm to 4.0 mm, will be of particular interest to the aerospace sector. As part of the WNT Performance series users of AluLine cutters can be reassured that they are purchasing a premium product developed to meet the highest demands placed on them,” says Tony Pennington, Managing Director, CERATIZIT UK & Ireland.
